Comment on Beef Short Rib Chili with Beans by Jeff G.

Do you have a substitute for the stout that is non-alcholic? I know the alcohol cooks out but I have a sensitive eater. Thanks for the help!

Thanks Malcolm, that’s exactly what I did. Chili turned out good, thick, and with just the right amount of spice. I made a side order of Johnny Cakes as a sweetener to offset the savory flavors. Good Stuff!
